We’ve got the Midas Dub

Midnight Star’s ‘Midas Touch’ is one of those tunes that’s almost impossible to dislike. Sure, there’s a whiff of fromage about it, but it’s one of those records that almost anyone will dance to. And quite rightly so – it’s a belter!

Messing with such a classic – which has, it should be noted, already been remixed by Ashley Beedle and others, is not necessarily the wisest move, but here at Bedmo Disco Towers we’re not ones to stick to convention. When listening to ‘Midas Touch’ again the other day it struck us that Solar System didn’t include a Dub on the original 12″. All you got was the (excellent) extended original, a slightly naff instrumental and the spaced out ‘acapella’, which combined the original bassline and vocal. We’ve always wanted a Dub that includes some, but not all, of the vocal and 80s synth disco style dubby breakdowns and so on. So, we’ve done one. Here it is, ‘Midas Dub’… enjoy!

Straight outta Bedmo!

Hey y’all – just a quick update about goings on at North St Sound (AKA “The Attic). Over the weekend Coherent popped by to devote some serious studio time to new beats, tracks and raps ahead of this summer’s festival season. It was a pretty productive weekend, with Five-Stylez and Coherent laying down the basis for our new “Thumbs Aloft anthem” – or as it is going to be known in future, ‘Straight Outta Bedmo’. Look out for it at our shows across the summer… it’s a party-rocking smasher! You’ll all be glad to know we’ve set aside some serious time to work on beats, rhymes, remixes and the like over the next few months so we should have some hot new material to showcase here at some point soon. In the meantime, keep your eyes peeled for new reworks, edits and, if you’re lucky, the first Thumbs Aloft mixtape. Whoop!

What would you do without your music?


Welcome to the first post (hurrah!) on the brand new Bedmo Disco blog-come-website – the online home of Thumbs Aloft, Pointless Edits. the Bedmo Disco Soundsystem and Bedmo Disco parties. Thanks for dropping by 🙂

In a bid to launch our new home in a blaze of self-indulgent glory, we thought we’d give you a fresh scalpel cut to sink your teeth into. It would have to be something celebratory to match our mood of wide-eyed excitement. It would also have to feature ace synth bass, spine-tingling piano bits and some top-notch dubby percussion.

So here’s a breakdown-tastic Bedmo Disco Dub of a familiar electrofunk/synth disco hit from 1982. Enjoy!
